Johnson Controls Introduces Tyco HD Encoder for Analog, IP Integration

The Tyco HD Encoder allows users in networked environments to retain HD and SD cameras while adding IP cameras over time.

MILWAUKEE — Johnson Controls announces the release of the Tyco HD Encoder, a solution that allows high definition (HD) and standard definition (SD) analog cameras to function within an evolving IP infrastructure. The product is supported by exacqVision, American Dynamics and VideoEdge.

Available in one-and four-channel options, the Tyco HD Encoder allows users in networked environments to retain HD and SD cameras while adding IP cameras over time, leveraging the benefits of IP while utilizing their existing analog infrastructure, according to the company.

Encoder hardware adapts analog video to be sent over IP networks, helping CCTV systems upgrade to a modern IP video surveillance organization.

The HD Encoder is ready for deployment out-of-the-box and is Power over Ethernet-enabled for minimal cabling by running power and data through the same CAT5/6 cable.

The encoder also includes features such as HDMI out, H.264 compression for cameras up to 2MP, multi-streaming and support for AHD, CVI and TVI analog protocols.

Tyco provides network video recorders and video management systems from American Dynamics and Exacq. Purchasing each aspect of the solution from the same vendor reduces potential product lifetime issues while streamlining setup and support, the company says.

Last month, Johnson Controls added facial matching powered by Tyco AI to its exacqVision VMS.
